Call it off!
Although the secretive nature of her third pregnancy meant that Kailyn Lowry was at the center of quite a few Teen Mom drama and scandals, her life has since quieted down considerably. She’s been living the single life for some time now, and seems to be focusing on a quiet life with her three sons — however calm that can possibly be! Although Kailyn has generally kept to herself in the past few months, she’s hit her fans with a bombshell that many didn’t expect.
After jetting off to Miami, it looked like Kailyn was taking a break from the hustle for a relaxing vacation. It wasn’t until recently that she opened up with the truth: she had flown out to have a specific type of surgery done. She updated fans with all of the details about the surgery, and why she decided to back out of the overwhelming procedure at the last minute.
Being a woman often means being unfairly critical of one’s own body, and being a celebrity can make that even worse. Kailyn Lowry has been open about having her fair share of problems with body image, and has even struggled with eating disorders in the past.
She shared that “Chunky Monkey” was a nickname her mother used for her when she was a child. “Don’t most body image issues start a home? Mine did,” she recalled in her memoir, Hustle and Heart.
When she was in high school, she met a friend who suffered from anorexia and bulimia. “She encouraged me to start down the same path,” Kailyn shared. “We were a pair of anorexic teenagers who became caught up in an unhealthy trend […] I didn’t want to weigh triple digits.”
That’s not to mention all of the negative attention that can often come with being a reality star. “There were tons of hateful posts judging me on my appearance and these trolls managed to find endlessly creative and hurtful ways to call me ugly,” Kailyn spilled. “I even had a Twitter page dedicated to me titled ‘Hulk Kail.’”
It’s no wonder that Kailyn has turned to cosmetic surgery over the years. “I knew that being satisfied with my outer appearance would give me the confidence I needed to face the world head on,” she explained. “For me, the things that I wanted to change about my body were nagging little distractions from the deeper missions I wanted to work on.”
However, she’s since had more conflicting feelings about her decisions to go under the knife.
After having a botched lip injection, Kailyn called it quits on plastic surgery. “No more plastic surgery,” she said in an interview with Radar Online. “I tried Botox, horrible fail for me. I’m done.”
As it turns out, Kailyn wasn’t as “done” as she thought she was. After posting gorgeous snaps of her and Lux enjoying a Miami retreat, Kailyn admitted that she went to Miami for more than just soaking up sun.
“I won’t lie to y’all, i came to Miami for lipo & a boob job,” Kailyn spilled on Twitter on Jan. 23. “But hours before my surgery i decided i don’t want to go through with it.”
She revealed that she had already decided what she was going to do instead. “When i get home I’ll use the money i was gona spend on surgery for a nutritionist & get back into working out,” she shared.
In an interview with The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Kailyn explained that she was feeling confident about her decision. “I’m not against plastic surgery in any way but this time I don’t want to go through the recovery and I don’t have a reason why I can’t do it myself when I’ve done it organically before,” she said.
